I’m 43 and you’re not.
I’ve been thinking over the last few days that we have one shot at this life we’re living.
We have one pass through our children being at the exact ages they are now. We’ll have one shot at it when they’re 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 18, 21, 25, 30, 35, and so forth.
You and I are in this together for the long haul. Let’s do it well. Let’s do it all on purpose.
Let’s build something together that is full of hope, sweetness, joy, and fun. Let’s take chances. Let’s love our kids and do stuff that we don’t want to do as parents (like that Capture the Flag game) because we know we’re planting seeds that will grow our relationships.
Let’s be intimate even when we both feel fat.
Let’s plan and plot and scheme to have the best lives we possibly can to influence each other, our children, and send ripples out far beyond.
We signed up to do this together. Let’s do it.
I was able to take the afternoon off to go grab lunch with you and the kids at the Downwind Restaurant at the PDK airport.
It was a very, very fun and sweet afternoon.

So for your birthday I bought you ‘www.realfitnessmoms.com’ because I think you have a ton to offer. You’ve been working out consistently for like 2-3 years. It’s impressive.
I asked you to put together a quick hit 15 minute workout for me.
You did. It probably took you all of 10 minutes. It took me a solid 15 minutes and a lot of sweat (and full disclosure, as I write this 2 days later – my abs, butt, and legs are still hurting pretty bad).
You know your stuff and you should get certified and teach this stuff to real moms who want to get fit.

Spring Break week… what to do?
How about taking our kids on a fun trip to the Booth Western Art Museum.
You always find fun stuff for them. And I loved how you dripped fun snapshots to me throughout the day. I can’t always be with you guys, but it’s fun to get little texted reports and snapshots throughout the day.
That aint an outlaw in the shadows, is it? ya reckon?
Gitty Up Girl!
Ride em Cowboy!
…with a sewing machine.
You made her the purse she’s been begging for!
And it do look good!
He is risen! (He is risen indeed!)
Glad to celebrate with you and are little hunters.
Thankful that you and I have experienced the truth of the Resurrection. I pray that we live in it and grow in it. And we can lead these three young hearts and minds in it.
You always make sure our home matches the season. I never think of these things. You do. And you always make each season much sweeter because of it.
